Standing Still

Ever feel like certain aspects of your day or life have an altered speed?

For example, on slower days like today, I feel like time is standing still at work. Sure there's little housekeeping projects to do, but I can only stare at addresses so long before I go cross-eyed. I do enjoy that I get to keep up on my guilty pleasures of blogs, twitter, and fb, but really, I feel like it's wasted time.

What would I be doing with that time away from my desk if it were for personal use, I have no idea, but it would something.

In other aspects of my life, I feel like the pace of life is something that I'm struggling to keep up with. I have four weeks to get packs and moved to DC, but I only seem to have short sighted goals right now. Namely, Restaurant Week, Boozing Brunch Bunch, and then a trip to Texas. After that, I'll have my birthday/going away party (Paging Chelsea...we need to talk.), then there's my birthday and last week of work in Denver, then I move. It's all right there in front of me, but I don't have any movement on my part.

I really just need to have a  master task list and just get to it. Granted, I can't do certain things out of order like get back from Texas before I go, or ship boxes before they're packed or I would be there to receive them. But I'm a big list maker. And when the list gets to messy from notes and crossed off items, I make another clean, perfect list.

(Side note: I'm becoming my mother. Hold me.)

Here's to making a master task list and hopefully filling my afternoon.
